Activities

The Alps provides activities that the UK struggles to compete with. Let us show you.

Whitewater
Rafting

It would be wrong to leave the Alps without going whitewater rafting. The Dranse river drains Portes du Soleil into Lake Geneva and provides lots of opportunities for pupils to work as a team on the way.

Rock
Climbing

It’s rare to find an accessible outdoor climbing wall that offers as wide a variety of climbs for beginners as the one in Morzine. Pupils will learn some climbing skills and put them to the test.

Mountain
Trekking

Trekking in the Alps in the Summer is something else! The trails snake up in Alpine forest before opening up into the stunning col that is the border with Switzerland. The views certainly won’t be forgotten.

Trekking

High
Ropes

High Ropes were pioneered in France and they certainly know how to make them. Go back to your primate-self and swing from tree to tree, cross rivers and test your mettle. Morzine has 2 courses suitable for all ages and abilities.

Mountain Biking

Morzine is world renowned for MTB! Once geared-up in full protection we learn some bike handling skills on the gentle slopes. We either descend the valley to Morzine or take the chair lifts up and ride down the special trails!

Paddle
Sports

The tranquil Lac de┬áMontriond provides the ideal setting for paddle sports and is a short drive away. Pupils will cruise around in tandem kayaks, paddle boards or single kayaks. They’ll learn skills, play games and soak up the environment.

Mountain
Exploration

Morzine opens several cable cars and chair lifts in the summer for mountain biking, trekking and sightseeing. They are an exciting way to explore the mountains and get some fantastic views.

Swimming
Pools

Morzine has a spectacular 50m outdoor swimming pool. It has a slide and play area making it very suitable for school groups. Before mid June we use a lovely outdoor pool in a local hotel

Team
Building

We have a whole array of team building activities up our sleeve. These range from 5 to 10 minutes during lunch half way up a hill or more challenging tasks and activities in the evening.
